Where NZ's Past Inspires Our Future - Inzone

Media Release

14 April 2003


The West Coast Development Trust is pleased to affirm its support of education by making it possible for the educational roadshow ‘Inzone’ to come to our region. The show features famous New Zealanders using their experiences and life achievements to inspire future generations and the Trust wanted to ensure that our children had the opportunity to be part of this programme.

The Trust has co-operated with schools throughout the region and will contribute $2 of the $5.50 admission fee for each student and also support rural schools with their transportation costs.

The show will feature in Hokitika at the Westland High School hall on Monday 28 April, in Westport at the St James Theatre on Tuesday 29 April and at Greymouth’s Regent Theatre on Wednesday 30 April.



Famous New Zealanders are using their experiences and life achievements to inspire future generations, in a new roadshow titled [inzone].

[inzone] showcases inspiring presentations by New Zealanders including Mark Inglis, Tama Dean, Peter Doake and Rob Hamill. As well as examples of innovative and creative achievements such as the Wearable Arts, the Britten Motorbike, the Hamilton Jet unit and virtual reality experiences created by Mark Billinghurst. The logistics and production of [inzone] is being co-ordinated by Steve Dean. Each experience is unique but all share the common element of New Zealand ingenuity and creativity.

[inzone] will travel throughout New Zealand, beginning in Invercargill on 3 March 2003. The concept was developed in North Canterbury by brothers Peter and Dave Doake three years ago. “The show will assist the children of our country to have more great New Zealand success stories to be proud of in their future!” says Peter Doake.

Other successful New Zealanders have offered to participate in the roadshow via live telephone links that will be broadcast during the presentations. Children will have the opportunity to ask them questions and receive direct and personal responses.

Due to the nature of the show the project has gained immense goodwill and support from many New Zealand role models, Parliament Ministers and celebrities. Many successful businesses have also shown their support of [inzone] including Industry NZ, Sony NZ, Ford NZ, Origin Pacific Airways and Sovereign.

Peter Doake believes “…that [inzone] will be a fantastic way to combine a varied display of what many of New Zealand’s successful people have designed, created and achieved, whilst encouraging our young people to be innovative and creative themselves.”

Four years ago, a roadshow run by brothers Peter and Dave Doake, called the Celebration of Acceleration, visited several major events throughout New Zealand. During that time the show appeared in front of over 750,000 people. The show gave a clear indication of the interest in innovation and creativity demonstrated by people throughout the country.

“The teaching and learning philosophy that has been the driving force behind the venture is the goal of having students learning for life by using Life to learn,” states Peter Doake.

[inzone] will run for 26 weeks, beginning in Invercargill on 3 March 2003 and will aim to reach 120,000 primary, intermediate and secondary students throughout New Zealand. For more information please visit
